Good food, a bad food, or no food at all? Or perhaps an even better question is why do these even enter into the equation when it comes to eating healthy? Are there really good foods and bad foods? Most attempts to communicate with consumers about food, nutrition, agriculture, and healthy eating by food activists, politicians, or even sometimes the growers themselves seems to miss the mark. While trying to push their message that some foods are better or healthier than others they forget that the fundamental rule of eating healthy while still being able to enjoy what you are eating is to eat in moderation, balancing that out with some form of physical exercise. Yes, I mean portion control, something that most of us aren’t willing to own up to. It’s not that we don’t understand the concept of portion control, we just don’t want to put it into practice, whether we are at home or eating out. One nutritionist reports that the only way to get Americans to eat smaller portions is to quit offering us the “super size” option, which makes perfect sense, but probably won’t happen anytime soon. If you are serious about portion control, there is help out there. Check out the USDA’s ChooseMyPlate website, or any number of other helpful sites to get your portions under control.
